Touch Football Australia welcomes ‘Girls Make Your Move’ campaignTouch Football Australia welcomes ‘Girls Make Your Move’ campaign

first_imgTouch Football Australia has today welcomed the release of the Australian Government’s ‘Girls Make Your Move’ campaign which encourages younger Australian women to get physically active.Minister for Health Sussan Ley said the campaign comes on the back of new research showing nearly 60 per cent of girls aged 15-to-17 reported undertaking little-to-no exercise or physical activity compared to one-third of boys. “This campaign was a fun way to encourage young women in their teenage years to build their bodies as they are growing. “It aims to tackle this sliding door moment in a young woman’s life when they actually are laying down the foundation for the rest of their lives. “Physical activity in the teenage years lays down the muscle and bone you need for the rest of your life. It’s a unique time as your body develops and the greatest opportunity to build up strength for your later years.” “It will also help us to tackle a serious ‘epidemic’ of diseases and chronic conditions facing this current generation if they did not exercise more. “The research is telling us around the late primary to early high school age girls first engage in some form of physical activity within peer groups. And if that first experience is not enjoyable the idea of exercise and sport also can become a negative,” Ms Ley said.Touch Football Australia CEO, Colm Maguire said the sport of Touch Football has a role to play in reversing the alarming trends in female participation in sport and active recreation. “Touch Football has always provided a place on the field for everyone with over 42 percent of our participants being female. We are certainly focused on increasing our junior participation and know that we can work harder on expanding our appeal to young girls.” “We’re planning for one million people playing our sport annually by 2020 so not only will the number of girls playing Touch Football grow, but we’re investing in our schools strategy to increase the proportion of girls participating as well. “Our unique offering of social competitions, gala days, events and our representative pathway means there are plenty of fun opportunities to be involved. “Participation in Touch Football isn’t limited to just being a player. With the assistance of the Australian Sports Commission, we’ve recently invested in the development a Women’s Elite Coaching Leadership Workshop and an Elite Referee and Referee Coaches Workshop to grow the skills of our female volunteers.  We have also had strong representation at a governance level and recently elected our first female Chair of the national Board.“We’re very happy to be able to support the Australian Government’s #girlsmakeyourmove campaign and we encourage each of our affiliates to think about ways they can promote the message in their own community,” Maguire said.

UN agency seeks strategic approach to impact of disasters on world tourismUN agency seeks strategic approach to impact of disasters on world tourism

“The need for a more strategic approach to risk and crisis management has been confirmed by recent events such as the forest fires in Greece, hurricanes in Central America, and the earthquake in Indonesia,” UNWTO said in a news release today.Although tourism authorities from Greece, Honduras and Indonesia informed UNWTO that recent events have not caused major changes in the schedules of travellers, reflecting the resilience of the travel and tourism industry, “it also underlines the need for a strategic and rapid response of the sector to the adversities,” the Organization added. UNWTO said it is drawing on “its rich experience and proven capability” in the work done so far for the recovery of tourism after the devastating 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami and the various efforts on bird and human flu pandemics.Actions included appeals to the world’s media to take care in its coverage of destinations hit by the tsunami so as not to slow the recovery of an important economic sector, avoiding a repeat of the “infodemic” that caused a slump in Asian tourism 2003 when Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) killed 774 people and infected more than 8,000 worldwide, the vast majority of them in China. UNWTO then called on the press, and particularly the specialized travel press, to issue honest and balanced information on events and situations that could influence the flow of tourists.Last year the agency unveiled a new Internet portal to provide round-the-clock tracking of emergencies and avoid over-reactions to potential crises, focusing initially on the bird flu scare of a potential pandemic. “The close collaboration with other UN bodies and agencies such as the UN System Influenza Coordination (UNSIC), the World Health Organization (WHO), the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), to name a few, should reinforce UNWTO in its future endeavours to tackle all forms of crises to the tourism industry as a whole,” today’s news release said. In the aftermath of the 2005 tsunami, UNWTO Secretary-General Francesco Frangialli stressed that the best way to help such devastated tourist havens as Sri Lanka, Maldives, Thailand and Indonesia, was to encourage tourists to return. 19 September 2007The United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) has allocated additional resources and realigned its work programme for the years 2008/2009 to help better face the challenges of natural and man-made disasters to a market that last year registered 842 million arrivals. read more

Closing Bell TSX racks up solid gain traders look for stability afterClosing Bell TSX racks up solid gain traders look for stability after

TORONTO – The Toronto stock market closed sharply higher Monday as investors snapped up oversold stocks for a third day in hopes a bottom is close in the sell-off that has plagued markets this month.The S&P/TSX composite index gained 110.09 points to 14,337.77 — its third straight triple-digit advance.“It was incredibly encouraging to see we got that late-week rebound (last week), which suggests that the market isn’t so fragile,” said Craig Fehr, Canadian markets specialist at Edward Jones in St. Louis, adding markets haven’t seen an end of volatility in the near term. The Canadian dollar slipped 0.06 of a cent to 88.62 cents US.U.S. markets were higher with the Dow industrials up 19.26 points to 16,399.67, held back by a 7% slide in IBM stock. The Dow heavyweight announced that its adjusted earnings were $3.68 per share while revenue totalled $22.4 billion. Analysts expected $4.32 per share on revenue of $23.39 billion. IBM also said that it will pay $1.5 billion to Globalfoundries in order to shed its costly chip division. It took a $4.7-billion charge for the third quarter as it also delivered a disappointing outlook.The Nasdaq climbed 57.63 points to 4,316.07 and the S&P 500 index rose 17.25 points to 1,904.01.The TSX found support from Valeant Pharmaceuticals International Inc. (TSX:VRX), which reported adjusted earnings of $718.8 million or $2.11 per share, 11 cents ahead of forecasts. Valeant also raised its fourth-quarter adjusted profit estimate and its 2015 revenue growth forecast and its shares rose $5.30 to C$140.74.The gold sector was the leading group as the December gold contract gained $5.70 to US$1,244.70 an ounce. The December copper contract was two cents lower at US$2.99 a pound.Rogers Communications (TSX:RCI.B) helped lift the telecom sector and its shares gained $1.39 to $43.67 as it announced that it was teaming with Netflix to deliver the original survivalist thriller series “Between.” It is Netflix’s first partnership with a Canadian broadcaster.The TSX is down about 9% from its September highs, the Dow is down 5% and the S&P 500 is off 6.5% amid worries the eurozone could slip back into recession and a global economic downgrade by the International Monetary Fund.Central banks have also figured largely in the market sentiment. The sell-off began amid concerns that have grown over the ending this month of the U.S. Federal Reserve’s key stimulus program. The Fed’s purchase of hundreds of billions of dollars of bonds has kept long-term rates low and encouraged the rally on stock markets over the last few years.The energy group was flat, with the November crude oil contract down four cents to US$82.71 a barrel. The energy sector is down 15% in the last month as demand concerns and rising supplies have sent oil down 14% over that time.The industrials sector was also flat as Canadian Pacific Railway Ltd. (TSX:CP) confirmed it held exploratory talks about a possible combination with U.S. railway CSX Corp. but those discussions ended without a deal and no further talks are planned. CP shares dropped $3.34 to C$221.65 a day before it and rival Canadian National Railway (TSX:CNR) release earnings.TOP STORIESWhy some global commodities players are shipping less Canadian crude by rail nowBlackBerry shares climb after unconfirmed report of possible Lenovo takeover bidCanada’s budget-balance target justifies top credit rating and stable outlook, says Moody’sThe world is about to find out China’s threshold for painWarren Buffett just lost $1-billion as IBM plunges most in 4 yearsWHAT’S ON DECK TUESDAYECONOMIC NEWSUNITED STATES10 a.m. Existing home sales (Sept): Economists expect 1% riseCORPORATE NEWSCANADACanadian National Railway Q3 earnings: Analysts expect $1.04 a share Canadian Pacific Railway Ltd    Q3 earnings: Analysts expect $2.30 Celestica Inc Q3 earnings: Analysts expect 24¢ UNITED STATESHarley-Davidson Inc  Q3 earnings: Analysts expect 59¢ The Coca-Cola Co Q3 earnings: Analysts expect  52¢ Lockheed Martin Corp Q3 earnings: Analysts expect US$2.72 Omnicom Group Inc Q3 earnings: Analysts expect 89¢ Verizon Communications Inc  Q3 earnings: Analysts expect 90¢ Yahoo!

Incomes of Canadas 1 grew faster than everyone elses in 2017 andIncomes of Canadas 1 grew faster than everyone elses in 2017 and

OTTAWA — The incomes of Canada’s top one per cent grew at a faster pace than everyone else in 2017 — and, overall, they saw their taxes edge down, says a new study.Statistics Canada has found that in 2017 the average total income of all tax-filers rose 2.5 per cent to $48,400 compared to the previous year. The average income growth of the bottom half of tax filers increased 2.4 per cent to $17,200.But those in the top one per cent saw average income growth that year of 8.5 per cent to $477,700. And biggest surge in income growth was seen by those who made even more money. Tax filers in Canada’s top 0.1 per cent, who made at least $740,300 in 2017, took home 17.2 per cent more income than in 2016. People in the top 0.01 per cent, who made $2.7 million or more, saw their incomes rise 27.2 per cent — making for the fourth-biggest annual increase in the last 35 years.The report’s release comes with the federal election campaign in full swing — and political pledges on taxes and helping regular folks with their finances have been prominent. Robo adviser Wealthsimple targets Canada’s richest families with Grayhawk partnership Taxing wealth might sound like a good idea, but it would be a tragic mistake Five tips wealthy families should follow when building a financial estate plan In 2016, the Liberal government increased the tax rate on income in the highest bracket. But the Statistics Canada report says that, even with the boost, taxes declined for those with the highest incomes because of reductions at the provincial level, especially in Quebec.At the federal level, the report says, those in the top one per cent have been paying higher taxes since the government created a fifth tax bracket in 2016, which nudged the effective tax rate of people making the most money to 18.8 per cent from 18.4 per cent.The overall effective tax rate, however, for those in the top one per cent declined to 30.9 per cent in 2017, down from 31.3 per cent the year before, the study says.By comparison, all individual taxpayers, on average, saw an effective tax rate of 11.4 per cent in 2017, while families paid a rate of 12.2 per cent.Families with kids, with incomes near the median, saw a lower federal rate because of a slight boost from enhanced tax-free child benefits, the report said.The effective tax rate in the study is calculated by tallying the taxes paid at the federal and provincial levels as well as employee contributions to employment insurance and to the Canada and Quebec pension plans.During the election campaign, major political parties have announced packages of tax credits and reductions, mostly directed at families.For example, Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer announced a $6-billion plan to gradually lower income taxes — to 13.75 per cent from 15 per cent — over several years for the lowest federal bracket, which is applied on income between $11,809 and $47,630.Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau promised to make the first $15,000 of income tax-free for people making $147,667 a year or less.NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh has pledged to raise the top marginal tax rate — on income over $210,000 — by two percentage points to 35 per cent. Singh has also vowed to introduce a one-per-cent annual wealth tax for Canada’s “super-rich millionaires” — those worth more than $20 million.When it comes to a breakdown of Canada’s top money-makers, the report said the one-per-cent club had 277,695 members in 2017, and 2,780 tax filers were in the top 0.01 per cent.The vast majority — or 92.1 per cent — of those in the top one per cent in 2017 lived in Ontario, Alberta, Quebec or British Columbia.Women made up 24.2 per cent of earners in the top one per cent, up from 23.9 per cent the previous year — and more than double their proportion in 1982. read more

Finsbury Park terror trial Darren Osborne turned into ticking time bomb after watchingFinsbury Park terror trial Darren Osborne turned into ticking time bomb after watching

first_imgThe court heard that Mr Osborne had suffered from anxiety and depression for a number of years and had not worked for around a decade. Darren Osborne was detained by members of the public in Finsbury Park Mr Rees said he had also twice threatened to take his own life in the weeks before the attack.Analysis of Mr Osborne’s media devices showed that in the fortnight leading up to the attack they had connected to web pages which included: the far right Britain First group; Tommy Robinson; a fake video purportedly showing Muslims in London celebrating the Paris terror attacks; Jeremy Corbyn and why people should not vote for him and Sadiq Khan’s comments that part and parcel of living in a global city was being prepared for terror attacks.Mr Rees said it was clear that by Friday 16 June, Mr Osborne had “formulated his plan to drive a vehicle into a group of Muslims”, because he had inquired about hiring a Luton van. Mr Rees explained: “The underlying theme seems to be that the defendant felt that insufficient was being said or done to counter-terrorism and grooming gangs comprising predominantly Muslim males. A police forensic officer examines the van used by Darren Osborne But she said she had never considered him to be a racist and had not heard him making derogatory comments about Muslims, before watching the Three Girls drama.Mr Rees told the jury: “Ms Andrews noticed that the defendant became obsessed with the subject matter of the drama. He started researching associated topics on the internet, including material featuring Tommy Robinson, the co-founder and former spokesperson for the English Defence League (EDL).“The defendant started making racist comments about all Muslims raping children and being capable of blowing people up. It appeared to her that he was becoming brainwashed.“Ms Andrews pleaded with the defendant to stop, telling him that all Muslims did not behave in this manner, but he was not interested in her views. With the benefit of hindsight, she describes him as a ticking time bomb.” “Against that background, the defendant decided to take matters into this own hands. He planned to make a public statement by killing Muslims, knowing that this handwritten note would be recovered by the authorities.”The court was told that Mr Osborne’s former partner, Sarah Andrews, described him as “unpredictable”, “a loner” and a “functioning alcoholic”.

Your families are all going to be Muslim. I’m going to take it into my own hands.”He also claimed to be a soldier and when asked what regiment, allegedly replied: “You will find out tomorrow.”Mr Osborne denies one count of murder and one count of attempted murder and the trial continues.  In the note he referred to Labour leader, Jeremy Corbyn, as a “terrorist sympathiser” and London Mayor, Sadiq Khan, as a “disgrace”. Darren Osborne was detained by members of the public in Finsbury ParkCredit:Universal News And Sport Witnesses, who described him as being drunk, later told the police they had heard him saying he wanted to write to Theresa May and Parliament, adding: “All Muslims are terrorists.”Mr Osborne was also allegedly overheard talking about a “Muslim march”, which the court was told was thought to be a reference to the Al Quds march, that was taking place in central London the following day. An unemployed father of four accused of carrying out the Finsbury Park terror attack became “brainwashed” and a “ticking time bomb” obsessed with Muslims after watching a BBC drama about the Rochdale grooming scandal, a court has heard.Darren Osborne, 48, from Cardiff became convinced all Muslims were rapists and belonged to paedophile gangs after watching the hard hitting Three Girls drama, which was broadcast on BBC One last May.On June 17 last year – in the wake of the terrorist attacks in Westminster, Manchester and London Bridge – Mr Osborne hired a van from a firm near his home in south Wales.Two days later, at just after midnight, he allegedly ploughed into a group of Muslims who had just left a mosque in Finsbury Park, north London, killing 51-year-old Makram Ali and injuring several others, some of them seriously.At the opening of his trial at Woolwich Crown Court, Jonathan Rees QC, prosecuting said: “The evidence establishes that the defendant was trying to kill as many of the group as possible.”Shortly after the deadly attack, a note was found in the van, which the court was told documented his extremist views towards members of the Muslim faith and also a number of leading politicians and public figures. A police forensic officer examines the van used by Darren OsborneCredit:Carl Court /Getty The barrister told the jury: “This was just under three months after Khalid Masood had carried out an attack on Westminster Bridge, driving a car into pedestrians, killing four and injuring many others, before fatally stabbing PC Keith Palmer, who sought to prevent him entering the Palace of Westminster.”Mr Osborne hired the van the following day, paying £170, before spending the evening in the Hollybush Public House near his home in Cardiff. A man prays at the scene of the incident in Finsbury ParkCredit:NEIL HALL /Reuters Reading from the note, Mr Rees said Mr Osborne had written:“Why are there terrorists on our streets today? We’ve had three recent terror attacks, our children spattered against the walls of concerts, part and parcel by all accounts, Mr Sadiq Khan, no it isn’t how can you let this happen, terrorists marching through our capital city, you’re a disgrace, where was the public outrage after 1400 of our white British none Muslim girls?“Where were you in Rotherham, Lily Allen, Jeremy Corbyn, nowhere to be seen.”Later in the note, he wrote:”So Mr Sadiq Khan how are you this morning?

A racist vowed to “kill all Muslims” before trying to murder a teenager the day after the Christchurch mosque terror attacks, a court has heard.Vincent Fuller, 50, lunged at 19-year-old Dimitar Mihaylov’s neck with a 12-inch kitchen knife through a car window in a Tesco car park in Stanwell, west London, on the night of March 16.He calmly said “you’re going to die” in an “evil way” before plunging the blade into the victim’s left hand, which he raised to defend himself, Kingston Crown Court heard on Thursday.Fuller pleaded guilty to attempted murder over the attack at a previous hearing and prosecutors say he is a far-right terrorist who, in the hours leading up to the attack, was heard shouting: “All Muslims should die. White supremacists rule. I’m going to murder a Muslim.”He also praised the actions of Brenton Tarrant, the Australian accused of carrying out the New Zealand shootings, which left 51 people dead, after watching a livestream video of the atrocity.Fuller, who sports a British Bulldog tattoo, said: “I agree with what than man did in New Zealand as we will not be brainwashed…” Vincent Fuller admitted attempted murder Vincent Fuller used a Chelsea baseball bat In another post, he wrote: “I am English, no matter what the government say kill all the non English and get them all out of our of England. We ate (sic) English.” Vincent Fuller used a Chelsea baseball bat Prosecutor Jonathan Polnay said Mr Mihaylov, who is British with Bulgarian heritage, was targeted because he has lightly tanned skin and was sat next to a friend, who had a long beard and was wearing a bandana.”Fuller entered the carpark and put into effect his stated plan to ‘kill a Muslim’,” he added.Fuller, of Viola Avenue, Stanwell, also admitted carrying a knife, affray and racially aggravated threatening behaviour with intent to cause harassment, alarm or distress.Mr Polnay said: “This defendant went on a rampage on the streets of Stanwell. There is no issue between the prosecution and defence that his conduct was motivated by racist and religious hatred, bolstered by the consumption of alcohol.”The prosecution go a step further, that his intention was to strike fear into the hearts of people he described as ‘non-English’, in particular Muslims.”Before the attack on Mr Mihaylov, Fuller left his upstairs maisonette armed with a Chelsea football club-branded baseball bat, which he used to bang on the door of his neighbour, Paramjit Bansal, who is of Indian heritage.Video footage from a camera in her doorbell, which was played in court, shows Fuller, hooded and wearing a cap, swinging the weapon and using racist and threatening language. Mr Mihaylov was parked in his BMW with his window down at around 11pm when Fuller approached.The prosecutor said the blade went into the victim’s hand as he tried to defend himself and clipped his neck before he was able to drive away.Roofer Mr Mihaylov missed three months of work because of his injuries.He said in a victim impact statement: “I realise how lucky I am to have made it considering how many little details could have gone wrong and ended up with a knife in my neck, which is why I now have a tattoo saying, ‘second chance’, on my neck.”Fuller was Tasered as he was arrested by armed police before he called officers “immigrant scum” and “race traitor”.Fuller tested positive for cannabis and alcohol and told police he had downed a large bottle of cider and three cans of strong special brew lager.In interviews he branded his Facebook post about the Christchurch massacre “disgusting” and claimed “I’m not racist”, telling officers he had friends from Kenya and Jamaica.Judge Peter Lodder QC said he must decide whether the attack is “terrorist connected” before sentencing him on Friday or next week.Fuller has 24 previous convictions for 59 offences, including a six-year prison sentence in 1998 for robbery after he stole handbags from elderly women.

first_imgTHE COUNTY MANAGER of Roscommon County Council has ‘utterly rejected’ allegations that he ‘sorted out’ an incident where local TD Luke ‘Ming’ Flanagan had two penalty points removed from his driving licence.Frank Dawson said he assumed he was the official to which Flanagan was referring to in the Dáil last night when he explained the circumstances under which two offences, for using his mobile phone while on Oireachtas business, including one occasion when he was travelling to a council meeting in December 2011.Flanagan said he had mentioned his incident to a ‘senior council official’, who later called him to say he had “sorted out my penalty points issue for me”.In a statement this afternoon, Dawson said he assumed he was the official involved “as he did mention in a conversation with me in December 2010 [sic] that he was stopped by An Garda Siochana for using a mobile phone whilst driving, outside the Council offices.”“I utterly reject his allegations that I ‘sorted out his penalty points issue for him’,” Dawson said, saying he would “take all necessary steps to protect my good name and reputation”.Today I am forwarding my account of this matter to the Assistant Commissioner of An Garda Siochana in charge of the investigation. In this context it would not be appropriate to comment any further at this time.Dawson had been due to travel to the United States for the St Patrick’s Day festivities, as part of a council delegation, but is understood to now be remaining in Ireland.Column: ‘Ming’ case demonstrates a profound misunderstanding of parliamentary privilegeRead: Ming: I want my penalty points backMore: Wallace: Ming should have accepted quashed penalty pointslast_img read more
